Shop Local on Black Friday

Posted By on Wed, Nov 25, 2009 at 4:16 PM

Twenty nine businesses and restaurants on Fourth Avenue between University Boulevard and Ninth Street are coming together to provide sales and promote local shopping Friday, Nov. 27, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. In addition, other shopping areas with specials are Campbell Village, La Placita and Maynard's Market. All are part of Local First Arizona, an organization that supports local commerce. From their Web site, a description:

Local First Arizona (LFA) is a non-profit organization working to strengthen communities and local economies through supporting, maintaining, and celebrating locally owned businesses throughout the state of Arizona. We educate citizens, stakeholders, business leaders, and legislators about the significant environmental, economic, and cultural benefits of strong local economies. We build vibrant communities that make residents proud to call home.

In addition, Etherton Gallery will hold a holiday book sale starting Friday through Jan. 2. They will offer signed fine-art photography books for 25 percent off retail prices. They are located at 135 S. Sixth Ave. Call 624-7370 for info.

Remember, when you shop local, 45 cents of every dollar you spend stays in Arizona. When you shop at national chains, 13 cents of every dollar stays in the state.
